A very nice mixture of red, black and blue fruits is still on the forefront yet anchored/balanced by fresh loam and savory nuances. On the mouth it gently takes over command in a very sneaky way. It is a ‘plushly’ textured middle-weight wine with lots of flavor. Bright, acidity gives just enough of an upward trajectory to the finish. My favorite part is a sense of transparency to the flavors: Nothing too assertive, everything in its place taking turns shining, for a moment. What it may lack in quantity due to the lower crop is made up for in quality and grace.
